    Awful bunt attempt. I have watched Stubbs since he started in Dayton and he is a horrible bunter. 1-5 FC.

    Re: 5/28/12 Reds Vs Pirates

    Why do announcers (and managers) act like getting a bunt down should be a sure thing? Sure, it's a lot easier than getting a hit, but is there anybody who's a lock to get a bunt down? It just seems like people take it for granted and act shocked (and morally outraged) when it doesn't work out.

    To be fair though, having 2 runers in scoring position would have been huge with Valdez coming up.....
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Slow runner on second, bad bunter at the plate who shouldn't be leading off in the first place.

    Why were they bunting down 3 runs in the 3rd inning anyway? And with a sloooow lead runner?

    I don't understand having Stubbs bunt there at all. Worst case scenario is he strikes out, because he can beat out a DP. And so that Valdez could hit?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Nothing like breaking a sequence where pitcher can't find the plate by bunting and giving away an out to help the pitcher out.

    Valdez in the 2 hole is brutal.

    "Thunder" Valdez shockingly strikes out.

    Our top two hitters are absolutely worthless today.

    At least he didn't hit into a double play.

    Up to Votto to bail Dusty out from the combination of that bunt attempt and the decision to hit Valdez 2nd.
